Wood Elf Chariots?

What better way to celebrate the launch of this new blog then to kick old school with some pix from my very first army! Taking you all the way back to the dark days of 5th edition Herohammer when Wood Elves actually could take chariots. Now that I think about it, that doesn't make any sense at all. How would you field a chariot in a forest? I suppose if you were a Magnificent Bastard you could pull it off.

I think the paint job is ok considering they were part of my first army and some of the very first models I ever painted. As they didn't actually make WE chariots these are converted 5th edition HE Tiranoc Chariots.  It was also my very first attempt at using green stuff as I used it model the front of the chariot with tree bark.

I suppose even a Magnificent Bastard might not be able to pull this one off, j/k! It's decent. I totally forgot about those goofy horses. I'd totally do up some woody chariots if I could!

I think those horses still hit the table like buddy rich yet in 2011 due to the DE dark riders.

5th Edition Wood Elves were my first army too. I am still waiting for them to release the WE chariot model I need to make that one army I wrote up back in the day...

Ah, those were the days. WE had chariots and Dragons were field in every army that could take them!
